I missed some important data. Kernel runs with threadirqs:
merkaba:~> cat /proc/cmdline
root=UUID=2f5c334d-249b-4c89-95cc-18572f750bd7 ro rootflags=subvol=root
resume=/dev/mapper/merkaba-swap threadirqs i915_enable_rc6=7
Oh, and I see i915_enable_rc6=7. This always worked flawlessly. But maybe this
changed? Cause according to powertop the GPU never entered deeper sleep states
anyway. Maybe this now works (and thus may hang)?
These are values on 3.12.6:
| GPU |
| Powered On 96,3% |
| RC6 3,7% |
| RC6p 0,0% |
| RC6pp 0,0% |
I also attach kernel configs of non working 3.13-rc6 and working 3.12.6
Its a ThinkPad T520 with Sandybridge:
merkaba:~> lspci -nn | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation 2nd Generation
Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0126] (rev 09)
Debian kernel packages available. But wellâ optimized for ThinkPad T520, may
not run nicely otherwere.
Please give suggestions on what to try next. Whats comes to mind is tryining
without rc6_enable option and then without threadirq option.
Any other idea?
